A few weeks back when a trucker was murdered on a dark , deserted country road in Lyon County Nevada , Mono Deputies responded (OUT OF STATE) ! Now that’s the blue backing the blue !

Mono/Inyo is a rural region with very limited resources. I appreciate how the different public safety agencies address this by routinely working together to meet the challenges they encounter. Thank you.
